Nut­meg This win­try spice will do more than liven up your eggnog. It was tra­di­tion­ally used as an an­timi­cro­bial and anti-in­flam­ma­tory, rubbed into aching joints or sore mus­cles, and to ease stom­achache. Mixed into a milky drink or pud­ding, it’s also the ul­ti­mate com­forter. An adap­to­gen, which means it can be both a stim­u­lant and a seda­tive ac­cord­ing to your body’s needs, it’s said to help re­duce feel­ings of stress and aid sleep, but also acts as a tonic if you’re feel­ing be­low par or over-tired. Grate it into a mug of warm milk or sprin­kle over your por­ridge if you feel in need of a re­viv­ing boost.*
